Triple Negative BC Clinical Trial

September 29, 2008

Researchers at the Cancer Institure of New Jersey (CINJ) are investigating a new combination of chemotherapy drugs targeted at patients who have been diagnosed with previously untreated triple-negative metastatic breast cancer.

Thus, standard treatments with hormone blocking agents and agents that target HER2 such as tamoxifen and the antibody herceptin, respectively, are ineffective weapons against this subtype of breast cancer.

I learned a lasting lesson that day: There isn't anything correct to say to someone reeling from the shock of a cancer diagnosis. But in helping my mom through her illness, I also discovered that some ways of showing support are better than others. And while there's no right approach, there may indeed be wrong things to say or do.
